I just bought a cordless Ryobi pole saw for my wife for Mother's Day. {She's childless, so she gets power tools.) I'm amazed how well an 8" chainsaw works on such a little battery. The best part is it's the same battery as my drill, so we now have two batteries and two fast chargers, so we can easily recharge while working. The bad part is we have no excuse to take long breaks.

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
